If the output stage is done correctly, this may be close to the end-all (relatively) for computer-as-source?

Thanks elrod

Aaarg, just when I am about set on getting the Stello DA220 MK2, this gets announced and gets me very intrigued.

I would have never even thought Slim Devices would make such a thing. I'm still in shock! That's definently on the "To Buy" list, even if I can't afford it

According to this the output stage uses opamps )http://www.6moons.com/news/news.html) in the output stage so we'll see...

That is what I figured... I guess someone could try installing the Zapfilter MkII output stage to get rid of that faux pas though eh?

Given a choice, I would still prefer to choose among various DACs available in the market by the users.

I'm buying one of these simply because of the form factor and the AES outs. I don't even need the DAC or analog outs. I'm really glad they finally did this. I also thank my modder for dissuading me from getting an SB3 even though he mods them all the time.

You'll still be doing a comparision on the DAC, though, right?

Inquiring minds need to know!

Sure. I'm going to pick up at least 2 of these. I'll try one out on the headphones.

Drool, drool, drool. Towel please. Damn that thing looks nice (pardon my French). 2k though? How long before the price drops to $500?

it doesnt have a big screen, so whats the deal?

I wonder if 18th is a sb3 sales day on the sales forum, lolx

I think it is a positive step that a company has seen fit to release a product like this. But for me, the price is a total dealbreaker. For that money, I could build an entire computer (with much more flexibility and higher useability) and connect it to a high quality DAC.

Surely just buying a Squeezebox 3 or something similar and connecting it to a $1000 DAC (eg Lavry, Benchmark, AQVox etc) would sound just as good and cost at least $700 less. Or am I missing something ?
